USA in its talks with Britain, yesterday, urged the nation to abandon the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and back the States in the international forum. USA has also asked for the support of Britain to counter the threat Tehran poses. US Ambassador Britain Woody Johnson criticized Tehran for funding “proxy wars and malign activities” instead of investing in its economy. He said Iran needed to make tangible and sustained changes to behave like a normal country.

“Until then, America is turning up the pressure and we want the UK by our side,” said Johnson.

Not just mere requests but Johnson has also warned that Britain should join forces with the US president’s hard sanctions. He has also delivered an ultimatum to British companies telling them to stop conducting business with Iran or UK will be facing ‘serious consequences.’

Britain negotiated the original Iran deal in 2015 with France, Germany, China, Russia and the US in a process coordinated by the European Union. The Tehran regime agreed to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions. The UK’s trade with Iran was £365 million ($640 million) in 2016 and currently, it is also being urged to cut off all business ties and relations with the country of Iran.

“The President has been explicit: any businesses which put their own commercial interests in Iran ahead of the global goodwill risk serious consequences for their trade with the United States,” added the US ambassador.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said last week that Trump’s repudiation of the nuclear deal was illegal and Iran would not yield to Washington’s renewed campaign to strangle Iran’s vital oil exports. However, protests have broken out in Iran as its currency has collapsed in value and inflation has soared. The protests have often begun with slogans against the high cost of living and alleged financial corruption but quickly turned into anti-government rallies.
